On this occasion, before I pass the award to someone else, let me share some of my thoughts about food photography and food blogging. My personal opinion is that food photos are just part of the whole blogging experience. It is not the essential part. For me, I enjoy reading much more about your personal experience with the ingredients, with the cooking process, the final results of the food you cook/bake or your personal dining experience. We all share the love for food first, right?
Having said that, we all want to make our food look good and I do have certain interest in food photography. I am learning a lot from other bloggers and some photographers in magazines like Donna Hay Magazine, Gourmet Travellers or Delicious. Flickr also has huge food photography communities. Here are just a few. And this is perhaps a bit off the topic of food photography, but this is one of my most favorite photographers on Flickr. No, she (orangecrazy) doesn´t do food, but her eyes for details are amazing!
Now this is the time to pass on the awards. These are bloggers that I have recently discovered and immediately hooked on!
Both of these boys are great cook, fantastic baker and excellent photographers. Their food always makes you hungry, and their photos are totally beautiful!
No she doesn´t do food photography but her artistic food illustration is beyond descriptions. What more, she is an incredible writer, a poet of the blog world in my opinion. Callipygia´s posts are always wonderful to read and admire.
Jenyu from Use Real Butter
I love her approach to photography – simple setting and focus on the color and texture of the food itself. Her foods always make me so hungry since it is full of energy and tastes!
